Punching Nigerian Heavyweight Contender Efe Ajagba Added To
Oct. 26 PBC Event In Reading, Pa.
Unbeaten hard punching Nigerian heavyweight contender Efe
"The One And Only" Ajagba will battle Jack Mulowayi in a 10
round fight shown live on Showtime.
Nigeria's Ajagba (11-0, 9 KOs) most recently passed the
toughest test of his professional career when he defeated
fellow 2016 Olympian Ali Eren Demirezen by 10-round
unanimous decision in July. The 25-year-old Ajagba went
viral around the world in August 2018 when his opponent,
Curtis Harper, walked out of the ring after touching gloves
to start the first round. Ajagba won the fight without
throwing a punch as Harper was disqualified. Living in
Stafford, Texas and training with Ronnie Shields, Ajagba has
increased his competition and added knockouts wins over Amir
Mansour and Michael Wallisch this year.
Fighting out of Antwerpen, Belgium, by way of the Democratic
Republic of the Congo, Mulowayi (7-1-1, 3 KOs) will make his
U.S. debut on October 26 in a pro career that dates back to
2015. The 32-year-old was unbeaten in his first seven pro
fights before losing a narrow majority decision to Herve
Bubeaux in a bout for the Belgium heavyweight title in May.
Mulowayi rebounded to defeat Artur Kubiak in July heading
into his fight against Ajagba.
